The Civil Guard clarifies a continued scam by using credit cards (07/02/2019)

The arrested took advantage of the bond of friendship with the injured to get their credit cards with which they made small purchases in physical stores and through the Internet

The value of the scam is around 800 euros

The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed the operation CONFIED in Mazarrón, an investigation that has resulted in the identification, location and investigation of two people as alleged perpetrators of continued crime of fraud and theft.

One of those arrested is also alleged to have committed a crime against road safety for driving without ever obtaining a driver's license.

The investigation began last January when two residents of the municipality of Mazarrón father and son reported to the Civil Guard that they were being victims of a supposed scam.

In their bank accounts, associated with two credit cards, they had received charges for numerous purchases, made both through the Internet and in various commercial establishments.

In a week, the sum withdrawn from their bank accounts reached an amount close to 800 euros.

The agents found that one of the cards, which had allegedly been lost by its owner, was being used to pay less than 20 euros in physical stores, thus avoiding having to enter the personal identification number (PIN), while that the charges on account of the other came from purchases made through online platforms.

As a result of the investigations, the Benemérita identified one of the suspects after paying at a service station with the allegedly stolen credit card.

This person also, despite being driving a vehicle, lacked the mandatory driving license.

This first information allowed the agents to verify that it was a young man who, supposedly, had taken advantage of the friendship bond with one of the injured to steal the credit document.

The investigation has culminated with the identification and location of two young men, 21 and 33 years old, residents of Mazarrón and Puerto de Mazarrón;

and of Ecuadorian nationality to those who have been instructed diligences as alleged perpetrators of continued crime of fraud and theft crime.

The arrested and the diligences instructed have been made available to the Court of Totana.
